August 25 Warzone Patch Notes: Caldera Map Exploits, Balloon Redeploy Issue, Bug Fixes

The Fennec SMG is an extremely deadly close-range option that has become viable again in Warzone Pacific Season 5, and here are the best attachments, perks, and gear for it.

Warzone Pacific has a variety of SMGs to choose from, and the Fennec is a great choice due to its easily controllable recoil pattern, excellent hip fire, high mobility, and extremely fast rate of fire.

The weapon had fallen by the wayside for a while, but the buffs it received in Season 5 made it a more viable choice. You can make the best loadout for it with the right attachments, perks, and gear.

Here is the best Fennec loadout in Warzone Pacific Season 5.

Best Warzone Fennec Loadout Accessories

  • Barrel: ZLR18″ Deadfall
  • Laser: Tackle
  • Store: Out of stock
  • Ammunition: 40 round drums
  • Advantage : Sleight of hand

We’ll start this Fennec loadout by improving the weapon’s damage range, recoil control, and bullet speed using the ZLR18″ Deadfall barrel. The Tackle helps with accuracy by increasing your ADS speed, aiming stability, and walking stability.

It is vital to your survival to keep moving during close combat situations, and Out of stock will increase your movement speed. We recommend using Sleight of hand to ensure faster reloading.

Finally, we will end this loading with the 40 round drums so you have plenty of ammo, allowing you to take full advantage of the weapon’s impressive bullet speed in war zone.

Best perks and gear for the Warzone Fennec class

EOD perk in Warzone Pacific
  • Advantage 1: NMS
  • Advantage 2: Exaggerated
  • Advantage 3: amplified
  • Deadly: Throwing knife
  • Tactical: Stimulate

NMS is an ideal choice for your first perk as it will make you more resistant to explosive damage from grenades thrown your way. Exaggerated will allow you to take two primary weapons, so you can pair the weapon with a long range option like the KG M40.

To finish, amplified will make the weapon switch instantaneous. As for the equipment, the Throwing knife and Stimulate suit suited for an aggressive SMG player’s playstyle, securing kills with the Knife and recovering health with the Stim.
